Preview: Scottish Youth Cup

RANGERS Under-18’s will travel North tomorrow for their Scottish Youth Cup third round tie against Ross County.

It is the third week in a row the young Gers will play in Dingwall after league victories over Ross County and Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the last two weeks.

The Light Blues, who are current holders of the cup, progressed to the third round of the competition with a 5-0 victory over Celtic last month.

Tomorrow evening’s game will be played at County’s Global Energy Stadium with a 7pm kick-off.

In their last league meeting two weeks ago, Rangers ran out 5-1 winners, but coach David McCallum said they had to work hard for the result as he expects another tough match against Ross County.

He said: “We didn’t get it all our own way, we had to work hard to get that result so I expect it to be equally as challenging.

“It is obviously going to be in the main stadium which I think adds another extra dimension to the game.

“It is at night time as well, I think to possibly try and entice people to come along and watch the game as well which would be great for both teams so we are looking forward to it.

“Fresh from playing us in the league, they will look at us and we will do the same to make sure that the preparation is right and hopefully make sure we come up and put on a good performance.”

Friday night’s match will kick-off at 7pm and entry is free via the West (Main) Stand at the Global Energy Stadium.
